I selected the KCP language program because I wanted to immerse myself in Japanese culture. I wanted to improve my Japanese, and there are glowing reviews of the teachers at KCP. The final verdict was decided when I looked up how much the program costs, and I realized that the short-term summer program is significantly more affordable than many other programs.

The vocabulary and grammar learning I find fun and useful. It is amazing to see one’s progress first hand as you are able to carry out more and more complex conversations. KCP was great and lots of fun I’d love to come back and continue to take courses.

The most productive and interesting part of the program, I think, was having the classes taught all in Japanese.

The most productive and interesting part of the program, I think, was having the classes taught all in Japanese. Even from level one, you have no choice but to concentrate on the language and have a need to learn quickly in order to understand better. As a student from the American program, it is hard to think of what was the least productive or interesting, I think everything was just so well done!

I was amazed by how MUCH I learned during this summer-short term.

The most productive aspect about this program is being in Japan, and forcing us to use Japanese almost all the time. I liked the onsen provided in theTanashi dorm!
